I think it is feasible to shrink time to ~ aN + O(N log N). How might we go about doing this? How do we get a logarithmic factor in our order? How can this help us speed up our algorithm?

This...

So I would use a hash, and it would still run in quadratic time. Also, the instructions say we're making this as efficient as possible in graal script.

Okay, well this thread has been dead for sufficiently long time. Here is what I came up with; it takes quadratic time.

function onCreated() {
temp.p = getpatterns("THISISATESTSTRING");

Yes, this is why I did not bother calculating the loops in your script. :p

e: Just made the realization that obj.substring() also contains a hidden for loop. Which makes all big-O calculations I...

The hard-coded for-loop is some multiple constant faster than the graal script for-loop. This does not change the big-O.

If I pass a large enough string, an O(n^2) algorithm will always be faster...

Do you want me to rank them or tell you how efficient I think they are? x-x



The theory behind big-O notation is that it should be an accurate measure of code efficiency regardless of language...

This is big O notation, it is how we measure the efficiency of algorithms, without being hardware-specific. The O stands for order, which can take 2 meanings:
In mathematics, O(f) is for all terms...

Programming Exercise #3

In a string of N characters, calculate the frequencies of repeated patterns, e.g., given "AUGCCCGTAUACGTA", one would get CGTA:2, CGT:2, GTA:2, CG:2, GT:2, TA:2, AU:2, CC:2. You do not need to...
